GIA name Mackintosh cardboard competition winner
August 29 2018
The Glasgow Institute of Architects have named Alistair Reid as winner of the Big Mack Build, a live-build competition marking the 150th anniversary of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, for ‘Paper Prospects’.
Reid won over the GIA judges by marrying Mackintosh-style watercolours with silhouettes of Mackintosh at the Willow.
The concept will now be realised in cardboard to take centre stage within the Billiard Room at Mackintosh at the Willow on Sauchiehall Street during Doors Open Day between 14 and 16 September.
GIA president Isabel Garriga commented: “… after all the bad news this year, it is always exciting to see how Mackintosh can still inspire a whole new generation, this is highlighted by the quality of all the competition entries.”
Weightless Patters’ by Ross Cameron and Titas Grikevicius ranked second, with ‘Hope in Honest Error’ by Dan Brown coming third.
